CREATING RAVING FANS: Satisfied Customers Just Aren't Good Enough

Successful organizations have one common, central focus: Customers. It doesn’t matter if it’s business, a professional practice, a hospital, or a government agency, success comes to those who are obsessed with looking after customers. Based on the best-selling book Raving Fans by Ken Blanchard and Sheldon Bowles, Dick’s program focuses on three critical steps for developing “raving fans” and loyal customers. Your organization must first DECIDE what you want to do with customers. Since you can’t be all things to all people, it is best to focus on the things that your company does well. Next, you must DISCOVER what it is your customers really want within that framework. Learn to listen to their needs and innovate to get those needs met. The third step is to DELIVER PLUS ONE PERCENT. The key here is to consistently deliver just a little more than your customers expect from you.
